This recipe is quick, so it’s the perfect dinner to whip up on those busy weeknights. I’ve taken the classic chicken cordon bleu recipe and reformatted it to be keto friendly and easy to prepare. I really like this dish because the flavor combo of ham, Swiss, Dijon mustard, and chicken are hard to beat. I also love that even though this recipe uses chicken breasts and bakes them in the oven – they come out nice and juicy.
With a typical cordon bleu you might worry about creating a roulade, setting up a breading station, and pan frying. Instead we’re going to layer the chicken into a casserole dish along with the ham and Swiss cheese. Then we’ll top everything with a pork rind crust and bake till perfection. It’s so easy!
I’ve also included a simple version of the Dijon sauce. You can keep it spreadable and thick with just the mayonnaise and mustard, or add a little chicken broth to create something you can easily drizzle over the completed dish. I kept it nice and thick for the pictures, but I like it both ways.
